Twelve Set To Run In Preakness

A field of 12 will run in Saturday’s Preakness Stakes, the second jewel in thoroughbred racing’s Triple Crown.

Kentucky Derby winner Super Saver is the early Preakness favorite, with 5-2 odds and drew the number eight post position.

The second favorite, at 3-1 is Lookin’ at Lucky, which was the early Derby favorite but finished sixth after a slow start on the rail. The Bob Baffert-trained horse will run from post position seven.

The third favorite, Paddy O’Prado, at 9-2 will run from post position ten.

Jockey Calvin Borel believes Super Saver, trained by Todd Pletcher, is capable of becoming the first
thoroughbred to win the Triple Crown since Affirmed did it in 1978.

Post time for the Preakness is shortly after 6:00pm at Pimlico Race Course in Baltimore.
